Friday Morning Toe Tapper

Our own Chris Nichols sent this one to me to send out to everyone.

Definitely gets your toes tappin’.

I really liked all the clips of the athlete training and preparing for the Olympics.

One of my favorite things about the Olympics is the concept of being the best in the world at something, even if only for a brief fleeting moment.

I think of all the hard work, dedication, sacrifice, etc. that it would take to get there and usually end up simply amazed.

I came to the realization at some point that it wasn’t in the cards for me to become the best athlete in the world in any of the sports I liked, but that doesn’t change this piece deep inside me (and all of us) that desires greatness, excellence and doing my best.

Think about this summer as you watch the Olympics.

What do you want to be excellent at?

What area of your life do you want to win at? Maybe even dominate.

The “what” isn’t the important part.

The “why” is.

The kind of person you will have to become to achieve excellence is.

Make it a great Friday.

PS. Special thanks to Chris for sending me this song. My favorite part of his recommendation for this song was that it was “post 1980’s”.

Got any good toe tappers you would like to hear? Send them on….I am sure everyone would like to hear some more “post 1980’s” songs on Friday morning.
